    TS's stuff that he makes while screwing around in gimp

    Post by Elsa on December 29th 2013, 3:31 pm

    pz keeps telling me to make this so

    yeah i make stuff in gimp and i figured out that layers are useful a while ago

    here are the things that i made that i like:


    Froslass! The white...fog or whatever it was supposed to be could be less...messy.

    Really simple but I still like it.

    Best one I've made imo.

    Yeah I really don't know what I'm doing : /

    Hm. I haven't done critique for GFX in some time, so some things may be a bit... nitpicky...

    Smudge! The one style of GFX that does not look appealing if not done right! Considering it's not a good practice to use brushes that are not soft brush, you've gone a step further than the regular amateur GFX Artist. However, the layers don't blend very well with the renders (I do think you've done it better with the Froslass one), and therefore make them seem awkward and kind of out of place. That is especially true with Madoka's color scheme not going with the rest of the signature (blue's a cool color, pink's a light shade of red which is a warm color). The text either is too out of place or stands out too much.

    Critique summary: you've got a lot of potential as a GFX Artist, you just need to look at how more experienced artists do their signatures. Also, some things you probably should look at:

    - rule of thirds
    - the use of resources

    Er, the resources consist of C4Ds, fractals, adjustments, and textures (although you probably don't need them unless you want to go in the direction of Tumblr edit-esque signatures).

    Good start! GIMP can be a bit complicated but I definitely enjoy it. I am still working on perfecting my ability to use it but I think I have come a long way. I look forward to seeing more of your efforts, keep it up!
